Yesterday was Valentine's day and what a great day we had. I started my day off with some shopping, and then came home to make a wonderful 4 course meal for my special valentine. We both got dressed up, and had a wonderful romantic candle light dinner that began with a garlic shrimp appetizer topped with melted mozzarella, then a heart shaped (stuffed with cheese and spinach) pasta in a rose mushroom sauce, then we enjoyed a perfectly cooked fillet Mignon wrapped in bacon, prosciutto wrapped asparagus and light rice. To finish this wonderful meal I made a wonderful triple chocolate dessert shaped like a heart, it was soooo good. I had been looking for weeks to get the right dessert recipe and after mixing one with another I found perfection. We finished off our dinner with a wonderful dance to one of "our songs". This Valentine was definitely one of the best so far. Alot of work but definitely worth every minute. For the amount of emotions Chris deals with on a weekly basis he deserves to be treated like royalty once in awhile, I thank god for him everyday and know that without him I would never be strong enough to keep going. I think we should honor those we love more often then once a year but I think it's great that there is a day dedicated to it just in case time passes us by and we forget. I received another special gift yesterday of a young boy holding a "HOPE" balloon, it's just beautiful. I'll post a picture once I find my camera.
I hope you all had a special day with the ones you love.
